steadfast love because time and again, they swallowed their fears and doubts and did what was hard. so today, when the challenges we face start to seem overwhelming or even impossible, let us never forget that doing the impossible is the history of this nation. it is who we are as americans. it is how this country was built. and if our parents and grandparents could toil and struggle for us, if they could raise beams of steel to the sky, send a man to the moon, connection the world with a touch of a button, then, surely, we can keep on sacrificing and
11:01 pm
building for our own kids and grandkid, right? and if so many brave men and women can wear our country's uniform and sacrifice their lives for our most fundamental right, then, surely, we can do our part as citizens of this great democracy to exercise those rights. surely, we can get to the polls on election day and make our voices heard. if farmers and blacksmiths could win independence from empire, if immigrants could leave behind everything they knew for better life on our shores. if women could be dragged to jail for seeking a vote.
11:02 pm
if a generation could define greatness for all time. if a young preacher could live us to the mountaintop with his righteous dream and a proud american can be who they are, and boldly stand at the altar with who they love, then, surely, surely, we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great american dream. because in the end, in the end, more than anything else, that is the story of this country. the story of unwavering hope rounded in unyielding struggle. that is what has made my story and barack's story and so many
11:03 pm
other american stories possible. and let me tell you something, i say all of this tonight, not just as first lady, no. not just as a wife. you see, at the end of the day, my most important title is still mom in chief. my daughters are still the heart of my heart and the center of my world. but let me tell you today, i have none of those worries from four years ago. no. not about whether barack and i were doing what was best for our girls, because today, i know from experience that if i truly want to leave a better world for my daughters and for all of our sons and daughters, if we want to give all of our children a
11:04 pm
foundation for their dreams an opportunity worthy of their promise, if we want to give them that sense of limitless possibilities, their belief that here in america there is always something better out there, if you're willing to work for it then we must work like never before. and we must once again come together and stand together for the man we can trust to keep moving this great current forward. my husband, our president, barack obama. thank you, god bless you. god bless america. >> and addressing this giant and enthusiastic crowd, first lady michelle obama saying the presidency reveals who you
11:05 pm
really are. i want to show you a photo that was tweeted out earlier. can you take a look at it. it's coming up right here. there it is. the president and their two daughters. 14-year-old malia and 11-year-old sasha watching from the white house. >> a week ago, michelle obama taking off on the theme of love. saying she loves him more than she did four years ago, and 23 years ago, watching him. as you said, revealed, and tying it to what he is doing as president. also, talking about his love for the american people and what they've learned from the american people. clearly, cokie roberts down on the floor, this is a speech designed to rally the faithful and it did in this hall. >> it certainly did. the signs of we love michelle. but also, she did something important in terms of humanizing as ann romney. a lot of presidents try to
11:06 pm
portray him as different. she said he was raised just like me. as she painted a portrait of our own childhood as being so very normal. but also this whole question we're not in it alone. that's the way they're making the contrast here. much of the contrast of mitt romney without his name being said. you can hear the crowd and she did a spectacular job in bringing it home. showing the president is a caring person, he's concerned about the people and going to still have hope and change. and we have to hope for that to happen. >> cokie, thanks so much. that seems to be the theme of the evening, with the keynote and with mrs. obama saying we're not in this alone. we do it together. and, of course, we will be back all week along here at the democratic national convention. i want to remind everybody, terry moran will be here later with a special edition of "nightline."

11:27 pm
from the southwest at 7 miles an hour. so very little breeze to stir the extremely humid air. the soup as we like to call it around maryland, is lingering in september here. a nice day in frederick from st. john regional catholic. that's our view here. showing a gorgeous red sunset, but again a mostly cloudily scenario out there. temperatures are running in the low 80s to the upper 70s and they are not moving much. sticky with lots of humidity out there. it still feels like 90 in baltimore. you see the very muggy humid conditions holding tough, and that's going to be the case until at least thursday. more rain before we get there. a better chance of showers tomorrow. you see the line to the west likely to drift a bit east
11:28 pm
tomorrow. and then in the heating of the day, a round of showers and storms into the afternoon and evening. as we go into thursday most changes of showers will be to the south. its all about the moisture from isaac. and actually the center of circulation from isaac continues to redevelop slightly and drift south toward the florida panhandle. in a sense its good it will drive awaisome of the showers -- away some of the showers action away -- shower action from us. we know this is going to continue to develop. this is leslie out here in the southern atlantic ocean. she is showing a little better intensity, a little more tightly wrapped in the last two to four hours. we think the projection will bring this to a hurricane in bermuda, but the storm itself
11:29 pm
in terms of the east coast, maybe eastern canada will be impacted. overnight, 74, tomorrow 88. some of the showers could be heavy that times. be advised of that. i think more showers are possible thursday. less numerous and drier air will move in on friday. showers into sunday, maybe a good day to watch all that nfl that will be on tv to kick off the season. speaking of our kick off, we'll put down showers on monday and hopefully clearing by monday evening. how about theorials? >> thursday -- orioles? >> thursday, friday, saturday, sunday. >> much more is coming up. >> first here's a look at what they are working on on nightline. >> i'm here at the democratic national convention in
